Remarks & Notes 
Looking for all the world like an RDC wearing an Alco FA mask, one of the Budd-built Roger Williams power units stands near Amtrak’s New Haven shops. Built in 1956, the six-car Roger Williams trainset was intended for high-speed service on the New Haven. Equipped with third-rail shoes, the dual-power train was one of several lightweight trains that were tried by the New Haven before the purchase of 60 FL9’s for use with conventional coaches. The Roger Williams power cars quickly became part of the RDC pool, and stayed in service into the mid 1980’s. The two power cars and one of the mid-train cars are preserved at the Danbury Railroad Museum.
